St. George Nursery School

Serving Children ages 2 through 4 years old


Purpose and Philosophy

St. George Nursery School was established in 1982 as a program and ministry of St. George Catholic Church. Our primary goal is to provide for the physical, social, emotional and cognitive needs of the pre-schoolers of St. George Church Parish in a fun, challenging and loving environment.

The children experience and learn about God's love, prayer, God's gifts, and other people in their Christian community.

Children of the same chronological age do not all develop at the same rate. Each child is a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of growth. We recognize that children are individuals with their own personalities and needs. We offer opportunities for growth by exposing children to many new and varied experiences. Each child is encouraged to develop at his/her own rate.

Each day offers opportunities to play, investigate, and express ideas for continuous development through developmentally appropriate activities.

 

Programs

Two Year Old Program (2 years old by Sept. 30)

8:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Two year olds need lots of socialization and free play.  They will be introduced to nursery rhymes, stories, songs, fingerplays, make-believe, art, and simple learning & enrichment activities.  We will encourage muscle development through puzzls, block building, playdoh, music & movement, outdoor play, etc. Click on the "Program and Policies" link in the sidebar for more information.

Three Year Old Program (3 years old by Sept. 30)

8:30 AM - 12:15 PM

This program has more structure than a two year old program, but not as much as a four year old program.  We will offer time for socialization development through exercise, games, pegs, tiles, scissors, outdoor play, etc. Click on the "Program and Policies" link in the sidebar for more information.

Four Year Old/ Pre-K Program (4 years old by Sept. 30)

8:30 AM - 12:15 PM

This is a more structured program, however it allows for a lot of felxibility and individualization.  We will provide learning activities, enrichment activities, art, music, religion, free play, socialization and many opportunities for muscle refinement and self-expression. Daily, we will spend time on muscle development through exercise, games, puzzles, pegs, tiles, scissors, etc.  We will spend time on letter and number recognition, learning telephone numbers and addresses, task completion, self-reliance, responsibility, and other pre-kindergarten skills.
